Well, that's what happens when you ignore science and the very loud warnings from medical professionals and take no measures to protect yourself. This virus has been circulating for months, and there have been plenty of others throughout history. We all ought to know how they spread by now, for the most part. It takes a special combination of hubris and stupidity to gather in groups without masks or distancing, over and over again, and expect NOT to be infected. And Repugs are the poster children for both of those qualities. The chickens are simply coming home to roost.

This should come as no surprise but it appears Trump knew he was positive 36 hours BEFORE he announced it. Per NBC:
Dr. Sean Conley raised some significant questions as to when Trump was diagnosed with the coronavirus. "He's 72 hours into his diagnosis now," Conley said Saturday morning. However, it has only been 36 hours since Trump notified the public that he had tested positive. According to Conley's timeline, Trump would have been diagnosed sometime Wednesday.

Christie advocated in the Washington Post for opening the country county by county, based on data,, which is basically what has been happening in the mid-Atlantic region. He criticized states that opened too quickly. He said there was risk to re-opening the country, but there was risk if the country didn't open. Christie, in fact, took that risk that he was advocating - and now he's facing the consequences. He always advocated for proper safety measures during re-opening - so that's where Christie failed to walk the talk. They all tested negative at the Rose Garden event, but that clearly wasn't enough, and he should have known better.

R128 They did not "all test negative at the Rose Garden event."
Tests were offered in advance. Many attendees didn't bother, citing earlier negative tests results w/o any evidence being required that they'd even been tested or that they were negative. White House staff were said to be tested daily. Few people on the WH staff or at the ceremony wore masks
And we all know that you can be infected before developing antibodies to the disease, the very thing the tests rely on.

He's no longer on the government payroll but I wonder if he has some sort of 'retirement' medical insurance. You know, the kind that most of us don't have, and those of us that do had to work 20 years to qualify for.
Who knows, maybe he has Obamacare. Let's be honest, you can't check yourself into the hospital is if it was the Marriott. He had to have his doctor call and get him admitted, which, if you have a regular doctor, isn't all that hard to do, especially if you're a former governor, 58 years old, asthma sufferer, morbidly obese, and just tested positive for a deadly virus. All he had to do was tell the doctor he was short of breath. Hell. CC probably experiences shortness of breath when he reaches for the remote control.

Christie and the medical center aren't commenting on his admission, but a news article explains what probably happened to get him admitted. The article says you don't check in like a hotel, but your doctor can get you in as a direct admission, so you can skip the ER. Christie had at least three risk factors, and people with underlying lung disease can turn very bad very fast.
BTW, we don't know what kind of insurance he has, but he's presumably a millionaire at this point, so he probably has the best plan available. Also, nobody has mentioned - he's a registered lobbyist and he lobbied on behalf of several NJ hospital systems in the past year. I don't know if this medical center is one of them, but I would assume that he's a favorite of hospital administrators.

When someone whose lungs have been ravaged by Covid-19 is struggling to get enough oxygen into their blood, ICU staff can choose from various interventions to try to help them. One technique is high-flow oxygen therapy, which involves blowing oxygen up a patient’s nose via tubes. Another option is to use a CPAP machine, which provides oxygen via a tight-fitting face mask. These are relatively noninvasive methods — but early in the pandemic, many ICU physicians avoided using them because they feared they could help spread the virus around hospital rooms, potentially infecting staff.
Nuala Meyer, MD, professor of medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, recalls that in the first few weeks of the pandemic, she and colleagues more commonly opted for ventilator systems instead. Although air flow can be carefully controlled with these devices, ventilators are more invasive. They require putting patients into chemically induced comas and inserting tubes deep into their airway. This can cause complications, and it may be harder for patients to recover once they are taken off such systems.
As the pandemic unfolded, it became clear that appropriate PPE actually did do a sufficient job of protecting health care workers from the aerosolizing effects of less invasive therapies. It was one reason why ventilators were used less over time.
“One of the more dramatic changes is being less worried about that spread,” Meyer says. That had benefits for patients, too: “If you can avoid the ventilator, you avoid sedatives, and maybe there is a benefit there,” she adds.
It’s a balancing act, though, Morgan says, because it can also be detrimental to keep a patient on less invasive methods should they prove ineffective. The patient only becomes more exhausted, and switching to the ventilator at that point can be even more of an ordeal for them.
Overall, though, the consensus among ICU staff seems to be that being able to opt for CPAP or high-flow oxygen therapies is a good thing. In time, clinical studies may prove that this has had an impact on mortality.
|by Anonymous||reply 224||10/10/2020|
Those drugs are pretty powerful, I just notice Remdesivir is made by Gilead, the same company that makes HIV drugs. They are basically using the same concept they learned from that to kill the virus. Actually in this case, keep it from multiplying further in you body in the hope that your immune system has time can overtake it.
That's why they keep saying if your immune compromised, this virus is a lot more dangerous. I am sure Christy's immune system has been compromised for a long time with his weight and other stuff he has going on.

In an interview with The New York Times and in a written statement, Mr. Christie said that he had believed he was in a “safe zone” at the White House while he was there. He urged people to follow best practices, like mask wearing and social distancing, but argued there’s a middle ground between extensive, large-scale shutdowns and reopening cities and states without taking proper precautions.
Mr. Christie said he had spent days in the intensive care unit of the Morristown Medical Center in New Jersey, after taking himself there on Oct. 3 at the insistence of his doctor. Mr. Christie, who was at high risk for negative effects of the coronavirus because of his weight and because he is an asthmatic, was one of several people around Mr. Trump, who announced early on Oct. 2 that he had tested positive, to contract the virus.
Mr. Christie had led Mr. Trump’s debate preparation sessions, and attended the Sept. 26 event honoring Ms. Barrett, the president’s nominee for the Supreme Court, in the Rose Garden. White House officials are looking at that event as a cause of the spread of the virus to more than a dozen people. “I believed when I entered the White House grounds, that I had entered a safe zone, due to the testing that I and many others underwent every day,” Mr. Christie said in the statement. “I was wrong. I was wrong not to wear a mask at the Amy Coney Barrett announcement and I was wrong not to wear a mask at my multiple debate prep sessions with the president and the rest of the team.”
“I hope that my experience shows my fellow citizens that you should follow C.D.C. guidelines in public no matter where you are and wear a mask to protect yourself and others,” he said.

I'm watching Christie on GMA. He looks like death warmed over. He talked about how he was being careful for seven months and he was able to avoid Covid, but he let his guard down at the White House and he was wrong. He is adamantly pro-mask.

[quote] Mr. Christie said he had spent days in the intensive care unit of the Morristown Medical Center in New Jersey,
That’s (relatively) new information. No one was able to confirm that in real time.

I hate his fat ass, but there’s more honesty and humility in his statement than we’ve heard from Trump in the last four years.

I’m with you, r256.
He gets a bit of a pass from me because he has now come out and said “I was wrong.” He also admitted that he was scared, which also is a helluva motivator.
I’ll give him credit where it’s due if only for admitting those two things.

Christie appeared on Governor DeWine's coronavirus briefing, touting masks. This was after Christie wrote an op-ed for the WSJ. He has become a true believer.
